Tribal Perspectives 2012
Now in its sixth year, Tribal Perspectives runs from 19 to 22 September in Gallery 27 Cork Street, and is the only specialist, quality tribal art fair in the UK. It brings together a group of international dealers whose expertise spans tribal works of art from Oceania, the Americas, Africa and the East. Works offered include tribal masks, textiles, and a diverse array of objects created for daily and ceremonial use that are appreciated by collectors for their decorative and sculptural effect as well as cultural significance. Jewellery and adornment is an important aspect of tribal art, as are arms and armour.
The event is an important focal point for those who wish to learn more about tribal cultures, as a series of talks and lectures take place during the Fair. Books and specialist publications are available for sale alongside the tribal artefacts. This year's exhibitors include: Chris Boylan – specialist in Oceanic and Aboriginal art, based in Sydney, Australia; Bryan Reeves – organiser of the event and an expert in African tribal art and adornment, based in Notting Hill, London; Clive Loveless – abstract tribal artefacts from Africa and Oceania, based in West London; Adam Prout – tribal art and artefacts from all regions of the globe, based in Worcestershire England; Charles Vernon-Hunt – specialist dealer in tribal art books, based in Portobello Road London; Louis Nierijnck – of Gallery Karavanserai in Maastricht, with tribal art, textiles and adornment from Africa, the Himalaya region and South East Asia; and Alex Arthur – dealer and author, editor of Tribal Art Magazine, the international collectors’ publication.
